Small business owner Suzanne Hermann asks her Senator to vote to raise the cap on credit union small business lending. "It's a no brainer, I can't see what the holdup is," said Hermann. Hermann was turned away by ten banks before seeking help to open her bagel shop - from a credit union. She now runs both a retail and wholesale bagel business and employs 13 people. S. 2231 will allow credit unions to provide more small business loans and provide $13 billion in new loans. Congress arbitrarily caps credit unions' business lending; banks have no cap.
